Product Description

Guiding Question: What causes the appearance of the Moon to change over time in a predictable pattern? 

The Moon Phases kit includes all the materials that students will need to design and carry out an investigation. Each kit contains enough materials for eight groups of students. Each kit also includes a Guidance PowerPoint that you can use to guide students through all eight stages of the ADI instructional model for that lab investigation.




  • Physical models of Earth (large ball on a stand)
  • Physical models of the Moon (small ball on a stand)
  • Clamp-on Lights
  • Light Bulbs
  • Dowels
  • Compass Stickers
  • Guidance PowerPoint & Moon Phases Calendars 

​What is an ADI Guidance PowerPoint?
Teachers can use the ADI Guidance PowerPoints to support students as they work through each stage of an ADI lab investigation.  Each PowerPoint includes images that illustrate how to use equipment, information about the core ideas that students use during the investigation, and questions to elicit student thinking during the explicit and reflective discussion. The ADI Guidance PowerPoints make it easy for teachers to prep for and implement an ADI investigation.

    Students actually UNDERSTAND moon phases!

    Posted by Rachel Novella on Sep 4th 2019

    I got to experience this topic as a learner during an Intro to ADI workshop (my background is in Biology with very limited history of Earth/Space). It was so powerful to experience--as a student I was able to genuinely understand our perception of the moon phases and extrapolate that understanding to solve other questions. This kit makes prepping the investigation seamless! I do recommend pushing the models further onto their dowels than the pre-drilled holes, though (especially the model Earths). Without a doubt 5/5.
